, but will the obama administration let it happen or turn an oil boom into a bust? welcome to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot. headed into friday, fiscal cliff talks with congressional leaders, president obama gave us a hit list of his negotiations strategies, repeating his intention to immediately raise tax rates on top earners. >> when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars and it's very difficult to see how you make up that trillion dollars if we're serious about deficit reduction, just by closing loopholes and deductions. the math tends not to work. >> paul: but does the president's math add up? let's ask wall street journal columnist bill mcguerin, and analyst steve moore and washington columnist kim strassel. so, kim, the president won reelection, was this the hand of magnimty reaching out to the republicans? >> it's crazy, it's what the president says all the time. if you listen to the press conference, he seems to say the biggest wish list for his liberal partisans
state department officials from the obama and george w. bush administration's discuss public diplomacy in a tough budget in vermont. the discuss the effectiveness of student exchange programs and government-backed broadcasting outlets, like "voice of america." the george washington school of international affairs hosted this event tuesday. this is an hour and 45 minutes. >> that is public diplomacy in action. [laughter] i'm a professor here at gw and the director of the institute for public policy and global communication. you can find us on twitter @ip dgc. we're also on facebook. we're hosting a conversation on twitter about this event,, hashtag ipdgc. what i will do to get as a rolling here is give a brief introduction and bio for our great panel here, and then get going into the discussion. we have a great -- with a lot of interesting people in the room. we need to leave time for discussion. first we have james glassman. executive director of the george w. bush institute. after a long career in journalism, he served as undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs
and that is drowns in yemen despite the obama administration's rhetoric to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al qaeda, that it's not drowns or airstrikes that are driving. it is civilian casualties. it's the individuals being killed along with the al qaeda targets. when i was in yemen, i was talking to someone who's very, very close to al qaeda he said look, you know, there's a difference between yemen and afghanistan and yemen and afghanistan are arabs and a knock at the country. in yemen archenemies in yemen. they move around much easier than they did. they can be a member of al qaeda and can be no locally. maybe some people known them as he tribesmen another see the u.s., for instance you would see them as an al qaeda member. the u.s. thinks it's killing an al qaeda member and maybe it is. but he's been a killed on the ground and yemenis seen being killed is in fact the tribesman. this is a challenge that the u.s. obama administration not released all and i would argue that the drones in the airstrikes have not actually solve the problem and they've actually exacerbated the problem the great deal.
of the obama administration, he decided to make the u.n. ambassador a cabinet level position. when you're cabinet secretary, you have some obligation to perform your duties and then to be held responsible for them and accountable for them. i appreciate that he's loyal to her and she is loyal to him that he defended her, but i do think that the senators have legitimate reasons to question whether or not she should be the secretary of state. >> greg: yeah. i don't think that's going to happen. but what do i know? >> not much. >> greg: thank you very much for coming here and providing some mediocre information. plenty more ahead. i joke, little person.

president obama got it right when he said she received information from my administration and if you have an issue with what she said then you come to me, and i think he's right. he's accepting responsibility as far as this issue is concerned. you know, we have to move on and we know that there are issues involving benghazi and the most unfortunate thing is that we've lost four lives and i want to focus on, number one, why this happened, how did it occur and to make sure it doesn't occur in the future and these are the issues that we need to start focusing on and to make sure that we can protect the people who work for the state department or for the united states and hot spots throughout the world. the highest priority is to protect their lives in the future. >> congressman, thank you very much for joining me. >> okay. got it. >> my next guest has known general petraeus. the author of the new book "the generals." welcome, mr. ricks. >> thank you. >> you say at the start of this book there are no bad soldier, only bad generals. many people have taken a dim view of general petraeus', but w
of the government of israel and the position of the obama administration and it's the position of the european union and the quartet. it is not the position of hamas and the terrorists. they're dedicated to our destruction. >> ambassador, thank you very much for joininging me. >> pleasure, pierce. >> joining me is the palestinian legislative council, a number of the plo executive committee. welcome to you. >> thank you, pierce. we just heard from ambassador michael oren, very strong words saying this is entirely down to hamas and the grip that hamas now has on the gaza strip. what is your reaction? >> that's not only disingenuous, but it's very misleading and it has very little to do with the truth, but we're used to the israeli officials' spin. actually before hamas took over in 2007 the israelis continually used gaza as a firing range, shooting at will, killing, destroying. in 2008 and 2009 they killed 1,440 palestinians and mainly civilians. today they're killing over 30 palestinians mainly civilians, children and women and at the same time they're talking about surgical strikes and they use the
to get worse? >> tom, i think the obama administration has been rightfully supporting israel because israel has a right to defend itself, any country would. but i think the united states is going to want to work with egypt, with turkey and ka trkqa try to convince the leadership to stop this very provocative and hardy shelling of rocketing the cities. when hamas is targeting both tel aviv and israel, this is a new phase of war between a long-running war between them. israel is going to react to that. i think you'll see a very intense demonstration between them to cease and decysist. >> gaza is not a big area. at some point they have to run out of pockets to some degree, don't they? >> yeah, but that's a big risk. so the big driver of the israeli operation right now is the long-range rockets that were allegedly supplied by iran and which hamas has been using to target major urban centers in israel like tel aviv, like jerusalem. tel aviv has been the red line for israel, and as long as hamas has been in possession of these rockets and can maintain that threat against israeli population
that happens, most likely iranian supported elements started this. >> obama administration backs israel. is president obama standing with israel as in your judgment as he should? >> yes. so far he did. in the sense that he has no other option. no american president can come and say i'm with hamas against israel. he is with israel against hamas. at the same time this is the worst time for explosion to occur in the middle east. we know our situation in. we have an economic situation. ee needs unity in congress that is support of israel. we have the benghazi hearing. we may have to look at our national security doctrine. we have an arab spring that is being taken over by islamists. so putting that pressure that the u.s. can only do this and not more. >> gregg: hamas runs the authority in gaza. it's also a terrorist organization. it is recognized as a terrorist organization by the united states. hamas refuses to recognize israel, it's charter to this day vows the destruction of israel. does the international community including importantly the united nations need to stop supporting the hama
department first two years of the obama administration. but there's also a republican i'm going to mention here, richard haas. he's currently the president of the council on foreign relations, and he was a special assistant to president george h.w. bush, and during the administration of george w. bush, he served as the commissioner of policy and planning, same position as slaughter. he argues that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but it needs to become weaker. states should wont a weakened sovereignty, he says, ford to protect himselfs -- in order to protect themselves. i want to make one thing absolutely cheer clear. i'm not talking against international law in general or against international relations, and i draw a clear distinction between transnationalism and globalism and nationalism. there's nothing wrong with having international treaties. that means between nations. so the united states has a nato treaty. we get together with western europe, we're going to defend ourselfves, there's nothing wrong with that. same thing. i am criticizing in the book supernational,
to the intelligence assessment. >> general, we have the gop still suggesting that the obama administration concealed the fact benghazi was a terror attack for political reasons. from what we have learned from general petraeus's testimony, doesn't it seem the administration held back information, if they did so it was because a genuine national security concern existed? >> well, you know, my take on this, alex, this is centralist political posturing inside washington. the problem was we had inadequate ground security there. that's a state department function, not cia. when the thing went bad we had this am bass do, bilingual in arabic, he shouldn't have been there. that was the problem. but -- characterized the mob was minutiae for good next sakes. libya is a mess. there's no government, no army. it's not a success. probably better than having that monster gadhafi and his family in charge of it. but that's the problem. they have to get their eyesight up. we've got a war in afghanistan going that's running us $6 billion a month and several hundred killed and wounded a month. and here we're focused on
: republicans contend the obama administration want today change the talking points for political reasons, to downplay presence of terrorists in libya. democrats say the edits were made to protect classified information and keep al-qaeda in the dark about what we knew about the attack. kelly. >> kelly: all right. molly, thank you for that report. >> molly, thank you as well. we're going to have much more on the benghazi hearings coming up at the bottom of the hour, we will talk to a member of the house intelligence committee who has been in on some of those hearings. >> kelly: indeed we will. and admitting to a major flaw in airline security. just ahead, what it means for passenger safety. >> jamie: so close to holiday travel, too, and two rock icons, using star power to raise awareness about teenagers, that are fighting cancer. you don't want to miss this. we'll be right back. ♪ why settle for less? testing hot tar... great sinesses deserve great rewards!

when the obama administration what prompted the attack. a spontaneous recognition to an anti muslim video, or terrorists >> then the cia director pretorius 3 km in september. now, impressions of that meeting are mixed. >> so much of this confusion arises because of the difference between what is classified and what is not classified. he has told us that this was a terrorist attack or if there were a terrorist involved from the start. i told him my questions, had a very different recollection of that. >> congre congressman's askiking said petraeus testified he had no to wreck involvement in developing the top ones used by susan rice. in early days after the attack the u.n. ambassador to the united nations pointed to the film as a potential cause. >> the key is that there were unclassified talking points at a very early stage. >> jacqueline: reporters are sat lawmakers are saying that- for transgendered was asking little about his affair with biographer paula broadwell anything that occurred with respect to disperse the situation has nothing to do with the way he handled benghazi at a
's being held at the state capitol. >> at that forum republican leaders warned the obama administration it's using mind control to manipulate all of us. we show the forum, that was all caught on camera. >> how psyched was the guy at the cbs station in atlanta who was asked to make that graphic for that segment, right? okay, we're going to need a graphic that has president obama on it. okay. and since he's president, maybe throw in an american flag. okay. what's the theme? it's about mind control. so give us something with president obama and a flag and the words "mind control" and whatever other imagery might get across the mind control idea at a glance. amazing. the story was based on this video shot by the group better georgia inside a four-hour-long seminar conducted by the republican caucus in the georgia state senate. republicans are the majority in there and the state senate president convened this four-hour event for republican senators to learn about how president obama was using cold war era mind control techniques to trick americans into turning ourselves over to the united natio
to the united nations susan rice did not call the attack a terror strike. but republicans contend the obama administration wanted to down play terrorism from the start. >> the issue is from what was released from c.i.a. headquarters on friday afternoon in an unclassified talking point memo to the point it was changed to the sunday morning talk shows, there is a gap of about 48 hours that we need to account for and understand why it was changed. >> all the intelligence community have told us that initially they recognized there were extremists and terrorists involved, but they thought it came from a protest, that it took them time to sort that out, that there was no political spin in this. >> after the talking points memo left the c.i.a., then went to other intelligence agencies and the white house and the state department and the justice department and then to lawmakers. somewhere in there, the language was changed. rick? >> rick: molly henneberg live in washington. thank you. >> arthel: the white house now reporting that president obama will meet with congressional leaders the week after t
. >> talking about money down the drain. obama administration gave struggling car battery maker 1, 2, 3 systems nearly $1 million the same day it filed for bankruptcy. a company scored a 249-million-dollar grant back in 2009. and applebys is introducing some new spirited items to their menu. they include a chicken and portabella mushroom deal that uses cabernet denny glaze. pretzel with the beer cheese dip. delicious. you don't have to be 21 years or older either. the chain says the booze infused food is available to all ages. alli, it cooks off the alcohol, i do believe. no buzz included. >> i think you are right. you have a future as a waiter. >>. federal housing administration could be latest casualty that continues to limp to recovery. recent audit of the agency predicted loss of $16.3 billion at the end of 2013. for the terrorist full-time in 17 years the fha could need a bailout from taxpayers. so what does this mean for all of us? let's ask real estate expert kendra todd who joins us live from seattle. good morning, kendra. >> good morning. >> so as we just reported. the fha it was just
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organized to take opportunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
during the entire bush administration. by the time president obama is rehydrated on january 20th, there's probably about 300 in his first term. cipro is an example of something the united states was worried about defensively, but was only beginning to go ostensibly at the very end of the bush administration. olympic games, program against iran was something that managed to expand considerably until someone made a programming error and got out to the world. special forces is something we've been lying on far more now as a light footprint strategy than we ever did before. with each one of these repulsive discovered that the return curve of when other powers or nonstate actors will have the same technology is shorter and shorter. so you now, we see china, israel, others have drones now. every nymphet drums right now. it's going to be a very short time. before we do with the other side of that. we're already dealing with cyberattacks each and every day on our infrastructure, not the kind in the olympic games, but similar kinds. the answer to your question is it can reinforce existing power
